Mark-Mark, The Billy Joel song "Only the good die young," only proves to be true. You were a great guy with a huge heart. The stories I could tell are endless. The Tavern will never be the same without you. As you sit at the Bulls..t Bend in the sky with your dad, Lloyd and Stormin' Normin', I'll be raising a shot of No. 7 in your honor. I pray that your family can find peace, knowing you are no longer in pain. Love ya, buddy!!!~Oona
